SOLVED: Some type of campanula?

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)

This bloomed in our yard today. It's only about 12" tall at most. This clump's probably been there for many years, but we mowed over the overgrown flowerbed the last two springs since we've been in this house and never saw them bloom until this year! Forgiving little things, aren't they? LOL. Is it some type of campanula? If so, does anyone recognize the type?

Looks like a Scilla, maybe Spanish Bluebells.

I think you're right -- thanks! Here's a site with a decent picture of the whole plant:

GW its definately a bluebell of sorts although I won't commit to Spanish Bluebell as I have these invading my front yard and the spikes hold a lot more flowers. Keep an eye out though as all bluebells are invasive.

Oh, they can be invasive here. It's a small bed we mow around. This clump has to be at least 5-7 years old, I'd say. We mowed over it for two seasons, so it didn't go anywhere. It can spread to its heart's content for all I care -- less to mow! LOL
